The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State, has reiterated its commitment to the candidacy of Senator Ademola Adeleke as Appeal court has reaffirmed the expiration of Osun High Court Ex parte order.

The party in a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Hon Ayodeji Areola, and made available to CityMirrorNews in Osogbo on Friday expressed gratitude to God as court of appeal in Akure had further cemented the position of the party in electing Senator Adeleke as the Governorship candidate of the party.

“In line with our pledge to constantly update members of the public about workings of our party, especially within this time of intense electioneering towards the fast approaching Governorship election in our dear state, we are today obligated to offer the good people of our state the progress report concerning our great party in Osun State, the PDP.

“Today, we are glad to report that the court of appeal in Akure had further cemented the position of our great party in electing Senator Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke as the Governorship Candidate of our party in Osun State. The learned jurists earlier on Friday expressly affirmed that the ex parte injunction of the lower court in Osun State presided over by justice A.A Aderibigbe had lapsed by force of operations of the law. The appellate court states that setting aside the order is mere academic as the said order had outlived it’s lifespan.

“The Appeal Court also granted prayers of our legal team to put other parties on notice for the hearing of substantive matters before it, through publication in a reputable national daily.

“The court also warned counsel to Hon Soji Adagunodo, the National Vice Chairman of our party in the Southwest, who instituted the case at the lower court in Osun State to desist from parading any other person as candidate of the party or making statements against the position of the court. It gave our legal team express permission to report appropriately, counsel to Hon Adagunodo, Barrister Z Buriomoni in case of further affront on the position of the court.

“With this, we are glad to reiterate that all legal encumbrances concerning the emergence of our candidate at our Special State Congress, Senator Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke have been shut aside and that our great party is good to go without recourse to induced distractions.

“The Osun PDP deeply appreciates the unflinching love and concern expressed by mass of our people in the state during the desperately orchestrated confusion.

“We therefore enjoin teeming members of our party and especially the highly expectant people of Osun State not to relent in their support for aspiration of our party and that of our candidate, Senator Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke to emerge as the next governor and steer the ship of the state which is the only feasible panacea to the collapsing social and economic wellbeing of the masses without any hope of reprieve in sight.
